Ya Farhatan

Nachfolge-Christi-Kirche | 53227 Bonn

By means of an aesthetic examination and a new setting of Schiller's "An die Freude" in Arabic and German, the composer Saad Thamir has made it his goal to create a new symbiotic musical structure consisting of Arabic and Western musical culture. Since the Arabic aesthetic principle is most clearly recognizable in calligraphy, the calligrapher Shahid Alam will design the poem on a canvas with Arabic script on the concert evening.

When air is still around

Museum DKM | 47051 Duisburg

In January 2020, Avi Kaiser and Sergio Antonino began to work on a new piece, the premiere of which was scheduled for March this year. With the outbreak of the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, they "frozen" the work. At the beginning of June, Kaiser/Antonino then began to work on the choreography again, but now with a look back and perspective on global events.
